  1. WATCH: Trump supporters celebrate video at his golf resort showing president conducting mass shooting Published 9 hours ago on October 13, 2019 By Sarah K. Burris Supporters at President Donald Trump’s Trump National Doral Miami showed a video depicting the president conducting a mass shooting. Instead of people’s heads, however, it was replaced with logos of media outlets like PBS, NPR and others. In the past, the president has advocated violence against CNN or other media, but has stopped short of advocating a mass shooting. “Several of Mr. Trump’s top surrogates — including his son Donald Trump Jr., his former spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the governor of Florida, Ron DeSantis — were scheduled to speak at the three-day conference, which was held by a pro-Trump group, American Priority, at Trump National Doral Miami,” The New York Times reported Sunday. “Ms. Sanders and a person close Mr. Trump’s son said on Sunday that they did not see the video at the conference.” The video even uses the Trump campaign logo, combined with a series of internet memes. The violent clip came from the film “Kingsman: The Secret Service” in a scene where an agent was being manipulated by a chip in his brain. He ultimately ended up killing everyone in the church. A person in attendance sent clips of the video on their cell phone and sent it to the New York Times, but the video has been uploaded to YouTube. Internet horrified by video showing Trump going on church shooting spree: ‘Disgusting — but not surprising’

  3. Farm foreclosures in Iowa went up over 17% (R)Sonny Perdue is right...the small farmer can't survive gop admins and Policies MADISON, Wis. — President Donald Trump's agriculture secretary said Tuesday during a stop in Wisconsin that he doesn't know if the family dairy farm can survive as the industry moves toward a factory farm model.U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told reporters following an appearance at the World Dairy Expo in Madison that it's getting harder for farmers to get by on milking smaller herds."In America, the big get bigger and the small go out," Perdue said. "I don't think in America we, for any small business, we have a guaranteed income or guaranteed profitability."Perdue's visit comes as Wisconsin dairy farmers are wrestling with a host of problems, including declining milk prices, rising suicide rates, the transition to larger farms with hundreds or thousands of animals and Trump's international trade wars.Wisconsin, which touts itself as America's Dairyland on its license plates, has lost 551 dairy farms in 2019 after losing 638 in 2018 and 465 in 2017, according to data from the state Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection. The Legislature's finance committee voted unanimously last month to spend an additional $200,000 to help struggling farmers deal with depression and mental health problems.
  4. The timing makes it look more like desperation than a trade deal...Like he got concessions from Canada in his new NAFTA that were in the TPP that he tore up....Ask the farmers who went bankrupt and lost their farms, how good of deal it is when they could have had it two years ago and saved their farms.
  5. In the midst of a terrible few weeks of scandals and bad news, President Donald Trump managed to announce a piece of good news for his agenda: his administration has tentatively announced a partial resolution to the trade war with China, in which the nation will make a large purchase of U.S. exports and Trump will agree to reduce some tariffs on Chinese goods. The deal will likely calm down unstable markets, and reduce the risk of a recession in 2020. But even now, according to Shawn Donnan in Bloomberg, experts remain unconvinced this deal will fix Trump’s trade problems — or that it is even a sign that he is getting what he wants at all. “The surge in Chinese purchases of U.S. farm products that is the biggest win for Trump in the agreement unveiled Friday is one that was first offered by Beijing more than two years ago,” wrote Donnan. “It will be accompanied by unspecified commitments on intellectual property and currency and will go some way to repairing the damage done to U.S. agriculture since tit-for-tat tariffs began more than 18 months ago.” “But even if it gels in the way that Trump outlined Friday, the agreement is far smaller in scope than what the president himself once envisioned, or what was on the table when talks broke down in May,” added Donnan. “It also leaves major questions hanging in the wind amid a broader relationship showing plenty of signs of souring — ranging from the Chinese furor over an NBA executive’s backing for the growing protests in Hong Kong to the administration’s invocation for the first time this week of human rights to crack down on Chinese tech companies and visas for officials.” “This deal hardly resolves any of the major underlying sources of trade and economic frictions between the two countries,” said former IMF China expert Eswar Prasad. The bottom line is that the deal is potentially a win for Trump and for the nation — but there remain a number of unanswered questions and conflicts that have yet to be resolved.
  6. Trump claimed US was taking custody of 5 dozen ISIS prisoners — but troops didn’t get them before they were freed There was a concern that the Turkish attacks on the U.S. Kurdish allies would free dozens of ISIS fighters that were captured by those on the ground. According to the Kurds, once Turkey began dropping bombs on the area, there wouldn’t be anyone who could stay to guard the prison. The last thing the U.S. military or any allies wanted was for terrorists to be freed by Turkey’s new war. But that’s exactly what happened. According to the New York Times, approximately five dozen ISIS prisoners and about 700 family members and sympathizers of the Islamic State fighters “escaped a Kurdish-run camp in northern Syria as Turkish-led assault unleashes chaos.” A Special Forces soldier told Fox News this week that despite knowing the U.S. was supposed to be pulling out and Turkey was on its way to bomb them, the Kurdish people stayed as long as they could to ensure someone was guarding ISIS prisoners. “They prevented a prison break last night without us,” the soldier said Wednesday. “They are not abandoning our side (yet).” He warned Wednesday that the ISIS fighters would likely be free in the coming days or weeks. It took just four days for ISIS to be free again and back on the battlefield. By Sunday, those prisoners and supporters went unguarded as Kurds fled for their lives. “[Trump] doesn’t understand the problem. He doesn’t understand the repercussions of this. Erdogan is an Islamist, not a level-headed actor,” the soldier said. “This is not helping the ISIS fight.” Indeed, these ISIS fighters could easily head to Europe and even fly to the United States. “ISIS has already claimed responsibility for at least two attacks since the start of the invasion, including one car bomb in a border city, Qamishli, and another on an international military base outside Hasaka, a regional capital further to the south,” The Times noted.
